Reference convention

Ok, what kind of references should I be using?

I can see that people are using the citation reference (square brackets) for some definitions but internal hyperlinks for links to other things which could also be considered definitions.

I have used the citation reference for links to FAQ answers. This seems to be wrong now that I look at other people's entries.. is it?
